What Should I Do First If I Am Considering Separating From My Spouse?

By Brian Loughmiller

A person considering separation should consult with an attorney to determine what rights may exist or what courts may do in the event of a hearing on temporary orders while a divorce is pending. In Texas there is no legal separation per se so the parties potentially continue to acquire community property or incur community debt. It is also important to have as much information as possible regarding your finances, your estate and any documents you may have supporting potential separate property claims.
